    It's probably be 4.2 (200 x 21) with a 200 MHz baseclock.
    RAM running at 1.6 (200 x 8).
    QPI needs to run at 200 x 16 at least.
    There are plenty of overclock guides that would get you up to the same clocks if the CPU is capable of it.

    That's the one I used.

    Be sure to monitor your temps when doing it, keep 'em under 75. Turning hyperthreading off also helps.

    Aye, that's because your CPU has a locked multiplier (Max 21 or 22), meaning you can't simply use that to OC your CPU, althought you can underclock if you so wish (nromally anyway). I'm not sure how EVGA BIOSes work, btw, cos some things have different names/are in different places depending on which manufacturer makes your board.
